No on Gonzales
Armando at Kos has the definitive statement on why Alberto Gonzales should NOT be approved as the next Attorney General of the United States. I agree totally. This man's counsel has caused the United States to prostitute the most basic tenets of our society, the respect for the rule of law and human rights. It's time to "fish or cut bait" and to paraphrase, you are either for respecting human rights and the rule of law or you're not. There is no middle ground on an issue this fundamental to everything this nation stands for. Making this man the Attorney General is condoning every report and every picture we have heard and seen from Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib and giving any enemy tacit permission to do the same to our men and women in uniform. This is a black and white issue there are no nuances--none.
